Career Opportunities

Graduates will find employment in a diverse range of areas including energy production, management and distribution, also in developing sustainable solutions to energy and environmental challenges, in the development of technologies for renewable energy production and energy storage and in environmental monitoring both within structures and in the open. Graduates will contribute to the continued development of the Green Economy across all of these sectors and be key to the development of new and emerging technologies .

What other options do I have after completion?

Suitably qualified graduates of this programme are eligible to progress to taught and research masters and doctoral programmes in DIT and in other higher education institutions in Ireland and abroad.

What will I Study?

If you are interested in the applications of physics to the key areas of Energy and Environment and are interested in pursuing an engaging career in these areas, you will need an aptitude for science and a keen interest in physics.

The first year of this Physics with Energy and Environment programme offered by Dublin Institute Of Technology provides a strong foundation across all of the relevant science subjects and in mathematics. This prepares students for the applied nature of the physics modules which are developed through to the final year and for the specialist Energy and Environment modules studied. In second year, the relevant core modules in physics, mathematics and computing are taught together with some specialised material in the Energy and Environmental areas. These areas are further developed in stages three and four. All students participate in an industrial work placement of approximately 6 months in stage 3.

Additionally, there is a strong emphasis throughout the programme on problem solving skills, professional skills, computing and ICT skills. Problem Based Learning is used in stages 1 and 2 and this allows students to become good problem solvers and to develop a range of key skills much sought after by industry and in research settings. There is a significant emphasis on laboratory practice and skills. These aspects of the programme, together with work placement and modules that emphasise the practical nature of the programme prepare graduates for employment in the relevant sectors or for graduate study either here in Ireland or abroad.
